School Choices in Ohio

Governor John Kasich continues to make his case to quadruple the number of private school vouchers in Ohio, bring that number to a total of 56,000. Critics have called his plan nothing short of a war on public schools, reducing the flow of funding even as they are asked them to do more. What are the pros and cons of private school vouchers? We'll talk with Betty Moore, the parent of a child using a voucher to attend a private school. Then hear two points of view about the benefits of vouchers as a means of education reform, with School Choice Ohio Executive Director Chad Aldis, and Policy Matters Ohio Senior Researcher Piet van Lier.
